"fox and friends" starts right now. >> bye. good morning to you. today is monday, december 14th. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. a fox news alert. in a stunning new twist in the case of a passenger plane that blew off mid flight. isis claims they blew it up with a soda can bomb. this morning we learned that may not be the case. >> interesting. plus, did you hear donald trump sizes up his texas competition. >> you look at the way he's dealt with the senate where he goes in there like a -- frankly, like a little bit of a maniac, you never get things done that way. >> did he say maniac? >> senator ted cruz responded with this. >> he's a maniac ♪ ♪ on
>> who is dancing right there? >> we're going to explain it all. it makes perfect sense. trust me. you'll have it in two minutes. >> steve, that was a body double. that wasn't even jennifer beal. remember that story. >> fascinating. outrage at nbc news over the new star wars movie. apparently darth vader is racist. >> yep. let me remind you, it's been a long weekend. mornings are better with friends. hi everybody. welcome to studio e here in the heart of santa central. look at all the lights out. >> inside and out it looks great. >> i have to say. >> on this the 14th day of december. christmas eve is ten days away. >> probably close to the cutoff of toys for tots. everyone in the last throes of
shopping. >> just starting. >> are you kidding me? >> are you finished? >> i wouldn't say i'm finished. i feel as though i'm in the back end. >> it's ten days until christmas eve. that's when i do my shopping? >> really? you make up a list. >> and check it twice. >> we'll discuss it. the best thing you could do is not get an idea from somebody else that you want. >> i should get what i want to get for you. you should not tell me. i can't give that away. >> i think it would probably be thomas jefferson and the -- >> i think that would be the case as well. i'll take two. >> now 20% off. >> guess what? this is a debate week. we do know who is going to be on the two stajts when it comes to the republican side. everyone refuses to drop out. >> that's right. >> there's big news. chris christie after being on the undercard made it back to the big stage. cn nsaid you had to have 3.5%
fashionly or 4 -- nationally or 4%. >> donald trump, marco rubio, ted cruz, jeb bush, then john kasich, ben carson, karl i fiorina and rand paul. the undercard, mike huckabee, rick santorum, lindsey graham and george pataki. >> cridonald trump cringed by c and carson on that stage. >> rand paul had dropped. evidently, his team was up there, had stats on their side. so he's now on the big table. bottom line is i think everybody loses. there's too many people on the stage. nine people on the stage. i understand if you're a candidate with your own team. but you saw what christie and fiorina did on the lower stage. you can shine on that stage and really make a difference and it's not fatalistic.
>> i need to see less on the stage. >> i think it was the very first debate who featured ben carson, he was in the back of the pack until the last 15 minutes of that first debate. he had three funny lines. he was brilliant and he started to go up. you got to pick your shots. if you have good sound bites -- >> a few people doing okay in the fox news poll among likely iowa caucus-goers for the republicans are ted cruz and donald trump. they're neck and neck right now. ted cruz at 28%. donald trump at 26%. >> you know what that means. >> oh, the gloves are off. especially on twitter over the weekend. did you see the words ex changed between donald trump and senator ted cruz. >> as you take a look at that poll, the "wall street journal" poll, it's staggering to see the surges. unbelievable. this is the one in iowa. this is the one in iowa. ted cruz goes out on top.
he's up by 2. >> they're in the margin of error. >> he's surging up there. rubio holds serve. the guy who dropped the most is ben carson. jeb bush up a point but just about -- he wasn't supposed to do that great in iowa to begin with. >> ben carson has lost and ted cruz picked up. when donald trump sees that, he takes it to the sound and calls him a maniac. watch. >> you look at way he's dealt with the senate where he goes in there like a, frankly, like a little bit of a maniac, never going to get things done that way. look, i built a phenomenal business. i'm worth many, many billions of dollars. i have some of the greatest assets in the world. you can't walk into the senate and scream and call people liars and not be able to ka joel and get along with people. he'll never get anything done. that's the problem with ted. >> there you've got something that we've all heard, ted cruz as a senator. he's a maverick.
ted cruz, however, even though donald trump is taking a shot at him, ted cruz did not take -- return fire. ? honor of my friend and good hearted maniacs everywhere, then he included the link to this. remember flash dance? >> she's a maniac ♪ ♪ maniac on the floor ♪ >> that's a great idea. this is why i think in my humble opinion it's genius. when ben carson was called pathological. he said i'm not pathological. when i was younger, i had issues. jeb bush said i'm not low energy, but he looked defensive in doing it. they were both second. >> ted cruz is surging, he's not qualified and he's a maniac. okay. >> have fun with it. >> keep in mind what's going on globally and politically and with the world, dr. ben carson
started to fade when isis became a threat and people said maybe he doesn't have the credentials. there's new polls out we'll share in the next hour that show when it comes to the economy, the number one person republicans would like to see in charge is donald trump. national security, actually ted cruz eclipses donald trump a bit. what's going on in the world right now? we're worried about what's going to happen. >> ted cruz's numbers are 69% among true conservatives. >> they are. for those who would definitely show up or more likely to show up at that caucus, ted cruz takes the win there among those who would probably attend the caucus. donald trump takes -- >> to your point, that's why rubio came out yesterday and said i like him, but when it comes to national security, he doesn't fund defense. when it comes to the patriot program as far as -- now we're in the freedom act, it's his fault we're not able to follow-up. it's a substantive debate, a good pregame.
>> it is. to get to the fourth quarter, you're thinking who is hillary clinton going to face off against and how are they going to do? >> nbc news had this poland compared hillary with them. you see how she compares against donald trump. leads by 10 percentage points there. she beat ted cruz. she does not beat ben carson or marco rubio. >> we should also point to the bottom three all within the margin of error. close but hillary on top. >> donald trump is going fantastic. he said chris wallace, roger els pays for those polls. i beat hillary clinton in the fox news polls. speaking about lovely people. >> we're thinking about lovely people. >> that wasn't a good transition. >> first let's talk about lovely new people. >> a lovely new puppy. so excited. >> she got a new dog. >> good news. i'll show you the pictures later. >> how dare you without checking with me.
>> on friday. i have a fox news alert to bring you right now. good morning everyone. hope you had aid great weekend. egyptian officials claiming they've found no evidence of terrorism in the october downing of that russian jetliner. russian officials say an explosive device was in fact placed on board the airbus that killed all 224 people on board. isis has claimed responsibility for that disaster. but preliminary reports, egyptian authorities say there is no indication of any illegal or terrorist activity. we should also mention tourism down in egypt by 10%. perhaps that's a factor as well. >> another fox news alert from overseas. a manhunt under way a suburb of paris after another possible terror attack. police say a preschool teacher was stabbed in his classroom by a man who claimed to be affiliated with isis who was screaming "it's a warning." he allegedly walked into the school before classes started and used items in that
schoolroom to attack that teacher and ran away. this comes as a terror magazine recently called teachers an enemy of a la and urged followers to kill teachers. that teacher survived and is in the hospital. we'll update you on that. a texas plumber, perhaps you remember the story. is suing for $1 million after receiving hundreds of threats when his truck, formerly owned by his company is seen on the battlefield with isis. see this right here. it says mark 1 plumbing and his entire phone number there. his name is mark overholser. he said the ford dealer he traded that truck to several years ago failed to remove his company name and phone number before they sold that truck overseas. they were posted on jihadi social media accounts. overholser says his business is suffering from that negative attention. post office workers across the country rolling up their sleeves for the busiest shipping day of the year. starting today, the u.s. postal service is expected to deliver
hundreds of millions of pieces of mail as people rush to send their packages so they arrive by christmas. the last day to ship your package with guaranteed christmas delivery is december 23rd if you use express shipping. >> get to the post office. >> or the ups guy. call brown. >> don't want to pay for the express shipping. >> it's a fortune. >> that's a late tax. >> see you soon. so many people are excited because the new star wars movie is coming out this week. yet, over on msnbc, melissa harris-perry became completely unhinged. she had a problem, has a problem, has had a problem for a while with mr. darth vader. >> i know why i have feelings, good, bad and otherwise about star wars. i have a lot i spent a whole day talking about the darth vader situation.
>> you could. >> yes. he was totally a black guy whose name was james earl jones and -- but while he was black, he was terrible and bad and used to cut off white men's hands and didn't claim the son. as soon as he claims his son and goes to the good, he's white. i have many feelings about that. i will try to put them over here. >> here's one thing she may not realize. james earl jones was not actually in the costume. he was just the voice of darth vader. a tall guy, david prowse was in the suit. not james earl jones. >> how does that make you feel about the movie? >> kevin mccarthy was on to talk about it, getting geeked out. big interviews. everyone is lining up to see the movie. does it change how you feel about it? let us know about comments. >> do you see racism in star wars? i guess you should digest that. still ahead on our show, a lot.

personal information. the other issue is religion. you can't look at anything from a religious perspective, even though we know the vector of most of the terror is through via islamic sects. let me be clear on this. there's no doubt in my mind, that if one person like malik made it through, there's already some either in the system or already here. >> colonel, as you know, she posted things that reveals her terroristic character and leanings? >> no doubt. >> but would not check facebook and currently today we're not checking twitter accounts or facebooks. >> right. >> >> how many other tashfeens are here and headed here? >> there's a three-day twitter roll-out of the attack of paris by isis. this is another example where social media, there's no doubt these people are communicating. i talked to an undercover officer who is working this issue for a major metropolitan issue. even though we could look at it

understand and president needs to understand, the protection of the american people is more important than refugees. >> donald trump says i want to know what the hell is going on. the average person says i don't know if i'm voting for him but i understand that. >> you contribute d to our weekend show. what was it like in the field? >> it was amazing. there's general dun ford and i. i said if it wasn't for the marine corps, the navy would not be a service. >> check it out. >> who is this? >> oh, my good. that's lea gabriel. >> we had a great time on the end zone. that's the closest i'm going to come to playing football for the army or the navy. >> a great time for the military. >> thanks for having us. it was great. >> no problem, colonel. always great to see you in the studio. still ahead, a family is devastated. a bench to honor their late son removed because it had a bible verse on it. first, they banned the national anthem and now santa is getting the boot. one mom is taking her school

with. >> absolutely. >> i suggest if you owe a certain amount of money because there's been a lot of documentati documentation, if they come with the same number it may be valid. but you never know. >> e-mail, beware of a scammer e-mail. if they claim you're eligible for a refund and confirm your identity. >> the key is you don't want to give out personal information to someone you don't know. >> does the irs ever just cold call you on the phone? >> they might call you to set up an appointment. that's about it. >> they do almost everything nail mail, don't they? >> that is correct. everything is snail mail or by letter, actually. mostly by letter. >> if you get a robo call, beware. if they follow-up with a letter, beware. if they e-mail you, that is a total scam, right? >> absolutely. >> all right. interesting stuff. there you go. that's the next step. >> sandy boykin joining us from

teachers an enemy of allah and urged followers to kill them. the teacher has survived and is now in the hospital. we'll keep you updated. they had to keep shooting and here is the proof, los angeles county sheriff's department releasing this photo of 20-year-old nicholas robertson still clutching his gun, even after he was shot. deputies firing 33 bullets into that man, killing him on the scene. the deputies were called to an area over reports of someone shooting into the air and acting erratically. officials say robertson did not listen to their repeated requests to drop the weapon. witnesses claim he pointed his weapon at deputies there. potential first round nfl draft pick in the hospital after falling out of a window. atlanta police say ole miss defensive tackle robert kamdicci broke a hotel window and fell about 15 feet. authorities found a small amount of marijuana in his hotel room. circumstances surrounding the

ben carson will be there. marco rubio, ted cruz is second, carly fiorina and governor kasich is to the right of trump on the other side it will be cruz, bush, christie and paul and the big story is the people that got on the stage. >> new hampshire helping chris christie, carly fiorina and kasich there. they had to be 4% in iowa, 4% in new hampshire or 3.5% nationally. at this stage donald trump in the center, ben carson lost with his poll of iowa caucus goers and when you see ted cruz taking the lead in numbers you'll take aim at him and it's certainly what happened over the weekend. they went head to head in some comments, donald trump saying this. >> you look at the way he's dealt with the senate where he goes in there like frankly like a little bit of a maniac. you're never going to get things
done that way. i built a phenomenal business. some of the greatest assets anywhere in the world. you can't walk into the senate and scream and call people liars and not be able to cajole and get along with people. he'll never get anything done and that's the problem with ted. >> something mr. trump has done effectively, when he's got a target he has given them a nickname. remember it was six months ago chuck todd he referred to sleepy eyed chuck todd. how many times do we hear him refer to the former governor of florida, jeb bush, as low energy? well now what he's trying to do is every time you think of ted cruz to think of the maniac. well, you know what? ted cruz didn't take the bait. he's not returning fire. he's returning it with this.
"in honor of my friend donald trump and good hearted maniacs everywhere," that included this link to the iconic movie "flashdance." ♪ she's a maniac, maniac on the floor ♪ >> when ben carson was called pathological he expanded on why he referred to himself like that, as a teenager, when jeb bush was described as low energy he got defensive and who wouldn't. when marco rubio was told he's just a kid, has no experience, how could he be qualified? he bounced back aggressively went at trrp trmp and they sparred for about ten days. i would argue they have the lower end on all of that. he's already loosens up hillary clinton saying she's not up to the job, doesn't have the stamina to do it. he's already got his opposition research ready to if. i would say this, though, ted cruz seems to be ready for just about anything, he seems to be surging at the right time in iowa, he also seems to have the second most money earned after
jeb bush. he's coming up in the polls and seems as though he was ready for the inevitable donald trump attack. >> has see van yellicals in his corner, tea party goers in his corner. when it comes to the economy, trrp trmp tak donald trump takes a lead in the recent poll by far. >> sure. when it comes to real clear politics nationwide trump has 30, cruz has 16, rubio 14, carson 13 and bush 4. yesterday on howie kurtz's program about the media, sharyl at ki atkisson, howie had a question about donald trump, the left and republican establishment are uniting against trump, and she said that the media is giving people a false sense of the world by agenda-driven journalists who really have a disconnect with the average person. listen to this. >> so if there was any doubt
about the disconnect that some people when they watch the news feel when they see the reality on the ground not portrayed well by anybody in the mainstream they're watching they know they are getting in some instances what i call a false reality portrayed bay gen da journalists who want to you think a certain way and rather than based on facts and looking at what's going on they react advicically to statements or people they don't like. >> altered reality. >> they do a poll out and say are americans concerned about islamic extremism, 58% say it's their number one concern and there's one candidate that stood up and said let's just shut it down so we know what the hell is going on, nothing against muslims, we have to find out how and why certain al qaeda/isis guys and women are getting in here, that might get a lot of people upset but the average person who i've had a chance to meet because i'm going on this book tour is saying i don't know if i'm going to vote for trump but i appreciate his bringing up
our concerns. >> is that what they're saying? >> absolutely. >> he's poking into their hearts a little bit with fear. >> and the same thing we got on the radio on thursday when you were on. how many calls did we get of people saying he's saying what we're worried about. >> when donald trump first started surging the number one thing everybody was talking about was the economy. >> and jobs. >> you think who out there knows the most about making money and getting a job? it's the billionaire guy. suddenly thanks to this isis strike, it looks like in the united states of america, out on the west coast, people are concerned about national security, and that is one of the areas, according to the new fox polls, that ted cruz does very well with. larry sabateau, the doctor, professor will join to us talk to elisabeth about that in what, about five minutes or so. >> about five minutes, you're right about that. the dnc is struggling to come up with enough cash so debbie wasserman schultz is asking taxpayers, your dollars, that's your benjamins right there, your $10 bills and
singles to cover it. she says they're short about $15 million to $20 million and they want you to help pay for it. the republicans saying we've got enough money we don't need any of your money out there. >> the government did cut off, we decided that as a country we're not going to fund these rnc and dnc parties. >> there's a big pot of money out there that's just essentially sitting down in washington. i want to say i think i read $290 million. in the last campaign cycle, both sides we said we don't want public money so there is money available. however, while the democrats say we want the public money and the republicans say we don't need it, congress has come out and said why don't we spend that money for research for childhood diseases, rather than on their big televised infomercials for political parties, why not spend it on kids who need it? >> as much as we have a great time going, i always end saying it's great to make connections and interviews. it helps our show but i don't
know how it helps either party at this point. this time -- >> it's an infomercial. >> this might this time the rnc might have a great dramatic battle in a brokered convention, where something actually gets done rather than a cor nation tak that takes place. >> i remember speaking at one in 2004 and i believe there's something really special about it. i think people are drawn to it and certainly why it's attracted so much funding perhaps or call for cash in the past but interesting move to ask for research for childhood recertain. so thoughtful. >> elisabeth f you're the it, nc and you have no money you've done a bad job. >> what does that say about the party? 12 minutes after 7:00 here in new york city. >> coming up straight ahead, a thief in the wrong place at the wrong time. >> is this your car? is this your car? >> no. >> then why are you inside of it? >> wait until you hear his response. >> good question. then this, a lot of us look
under the hood of a car, to look like we know what we're doing, we don't. what you need to know so you don't get ripped off, straight ahead. ♪ no he can't read my poker face ♪ when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness.
while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. you grab your 10-gallon jug of coffee, and back out of the garage. right into your wife's car. with your wife watching. she forgives you... eventually. your insurance company, not so much. they say you only have their basic policy. don't basic policies cover basic accidents? of course, they say... as long as you pay extra for it. with a liberty mutual base policy, new car replacement comes standard. and for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates

all right, for decades the u.s. economy has helped shape elections but following the attacks in san bernardino as well as paris, national security now taking top priority, but will it stay that way? dr. larry sabateau, you were telling me it's all about the economy. let's look at this poll now and tell me if you've changed your mind long-term. national security now number one with 34 followed by economic issues at 32, followed by immigration at 15 and social issues at 8. change your mind in terms of long-term concerns? >> well, the economy is not going to disappear. that's a statistical tie between the economy and national security northern policy. if you're asking me, have things after paris and san bernardino changed to the point where national security may be the equal of the economy, i would say yes. first of all, memories are going to last from those two horrific
events, and second, unfortunately the world being what it is, you're probably going to have additional events between now and the election that will keep it fresh in people's minds. >> all right, so looking at that right now, if terrorism ends up top and economies second, cruz looks stronger in the latest fox poll with 30% of people saying he's best in the gop side, trump with 20 followed by rubio and bush. if you go on the economy, it is trump by a mile, 41-17. >> yes, trump would benefit more from an emphasis on the economy, although i think his tough posture appeals certainly to his base and they see him as an appropriate person to handle the issue. it's true for cruz, it's true for rubio. it's true for christie. could you even make an argument for some of the candidates who are way down the list, bush and lindsey graham. >> who is better on terrorism? it's pretty much republicans by
10, 44-34 and that's pretty traditional, wouldn't you say, mr. sabato? >> yes. i took a look at this, ever since 1968 that great mixon humphrey wallace election where vietnam was so dominant. whenever foreign policy has been a major issue in the campaign, republicans have benefited from it and done well, with only one exception, 2008, in 2008 you had a situation with the iraq war being unpopular and on account of that, the democrats benefited but that was the exception that proved the rule. >> that was a little bit of an anomaly. who has most at stake on tuesday's debate? >> oh i think at this point we're going to be looking at cruz and trump. they're going to be going back and forth at one another. they're battling for iowa. it's the first contest and the other contense ants on the stage there are just going to be trying to get a word in edge wise. >> it will be interesting, too, because i know rubio and cruz have been sparring about the,
about terrorism, about defense funding. i wonder if they'll cross in front. >> they easily could. that would be another subplot of the debate and of course all the others are going to try to get noticed, and you know what that means. interruptions and clever sound bites and practiced lines. >> right. >> we're pretty used to it by now. >> i know the stage is just too crowded. i understand everyone has a strong case, just too crowded. dr. sabato always great to talk to you. i know you'll have a quiz with your college students the day after the debate on wednesday. be ready. >> of course. >> dr. sabato thank you. up next from a galaxy far, far away to a curvy couch, kevin mccarthy previews his first movie and he has his famous christmas suit. how do i know? i have eyes. ♪ what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever? heart healthy california walnuts.

contact your health plan for the latest information. brand new fox news polls show donald trump may be the best republican candidate to beat hillary clinton in a hypothetical 2016 matchup, trump scores 3 % of likely gop caucus goers. in iowa, ted cruz 18%. marco rubio is at 14% and ben carson the doctor just 6% for him. more americans concerned about national security than the economy. do any of these candidates actually stand a chance? joining us the woodhouse brothers, dallas is the executive director of the north carolina republican party and brad is the president of correct the record. thanks for being with us here. >> good morning. >> when you look at the first poll out of iowa, what do you think, brad? >> well, look, i think it's interesting to me. donald trump i think one of the untold stories in the race is that donald trump's been one of the most consistent candidates
we've seen on the republican side in many elections. he's held a strong lead in iowa now, cruz is challenging him there, but he's a formidable candidate. i don't think anyone in july would have said that donald trump is a formidable candidate. he's led the race every day since he got in, all but three days he's led the race nationally, so i don't doubt that that poll among likely caucus goers believes that donald trump is a strong candidate. >> dallas, your thoughts? >> well, i think that donald trump has helped express the anger so many people have in the country over the week and feckless administration that we have but at some point you have to have a positive forward looking agen da for the country and that's what i think people will be looking at as we get over the holidays and the real meat of the campaign starts in january. so we'll have to see how mr. trump performs, mr. cruz and others. i will say this, from my own state, the cruz people are very organized. i hear they're extremely well
organized on the ground in iowa, and you know, it's later in the race and now that you start to see that materialize into something that really can bring people to the caucuses. >> let me put this one thing in here, the last attack on our own soil when it comes to radical islam and terrorism. certainly it's on the front of americans' minds. when asked which party handles terrorism better, republicans get the win there, 44% in terms of people that believe the republican party handles terrorism better. will that hurt hillary? >> well look, i think there's an opportunity here. hillary clinton is the only one of the candidates running on either side that has any significant foreign policy experience. i think what we need, what hillary needs to turn the numbers around, what hillary needs to turn the numbers around is the opportunity to get into a debate with whoever the republican candidate is. we know donald trump has not laid out any specifics on foreign policy. he's just bellicose, has a lot
of rhetoric and what dallas has to deal with and what the republican party has to deal with is that trdonald trump has led republicans down the path of extremism. whoever the candidate is, dallas has to figure out how do awe tract more voters than they did in 2012? >> who knew that you and the party were such bigots? >> how are you going to deal with the fact that hillary clinton wants to start a hug-a-thug terrorist program and fight terrorism with love and kindness? the people of america don't want to fight no terrorism with love and kindness. they want to fight with muscle and might and a lack of mercy. >> dallas, i understand, you came on this program a year ago and said that the next president should bomb a muslim country, not terrorists, just bomb all the muslims, and that's the attitude -- >> i didn't say that. >> that is exactly what you said, the attitude that most of the republican candidates have. donald trump has pulled them in that direction and that's
something that you're going to have to deal with. >> maybe you all can bake cookies for the terrorists and hug-a-thug terrorists. >> bomb a muslim country. >> okay brothers i'll do like i do this at my own house you'll finish this up on your own time. we're glad you spent some time with us this morning. we love having the woodhouse brothers here with us h "fox & friends." see you soon. do you trust your mechanic? an expert taking us under the hood to show us what we need to know so we do not get ripped awe. 1987 on this day "faith" was most popular. it was in my walkman at the time. arturito soup! okay, okay. arturito soup! hi! arturito soup?
what? $2,800? that's the estimate on my car? no, don't even do anything. i'm going to think about it. okay, bye. >> what's to think about, if wudy says it's what it is, he's not going to cheat you. >> it's not buddy. i took it to another place. >> of course they're trying to screw you. they can make up anybody. nobody knows. by the way you need a new johnson rod in here. johnson rod, yeah, better put one of those on. >> apparently it's bent. new survey says half of the guys who check under the hood have no idea who they're looking at. who better than lauren fix to show us what to look for. that's one of the things we buy a new car you say open up the hood. you open it up and you look in there like you know what you're doing. people don't know. >> right. first if you're buying a used car, a new car you do your homework online but for a used
car you want to see if people are being car care aware. basic maintenance you look under the hood and you see something like this, use your visual skills. >> that's a crack. >> this belt. >> it's never sitting like this, it's in the engine. >> that's why you need, i'm my cousin vinny in real life. brake fluid, dirty, clean. >> there are the fluids. >> dirty oil, clean oil. dirty brake fluid. >> how do you drain blake fluid. >> if the reservoir looks dirty and the person hasn't taken care of that irtheir car. >> next time you go in. >> used cars. >> you see a fuse box open it up, because -- >> there's your fuses and underneath if you see moisture it's a flood damaged car, you see rusts or welds that aren't lined up, get in the car and just go thank you very much, run. >> look at the metal to see if
they're tight. >> if the metal isn't lined up, welds, use your senses. what do you so he? what do you hear? what do you feel? what do you smell with you don't taste the car. >> might be too general but when people say i don't know that person, if i go to someone's house and buy a used car as opposed to dealership. am i better off with a dealership? >> no, you're better off getting the best deal but you can get a report like this one i brought for but. >> that's the key. >> pay like 150 bucks, a ton of different places that have it, they'll give you a green, yellow and red. >> a third party takes a look at the car. >> don't let them go i got you covered no problem. the car is awesome. >> they're trying to sell the car. you want a good deal. >> the vehicle identification reports will give you an idea if the car has been in an accident. >> i bought a 19 t79 prelude. only one problems with the engine. they looked at it after i bought it and said you need a new engine. >> transmission. >> i didn't know you then. >> now you do. i'll go with you. >> the fix is in.

good morning to you. it is monday, december 14th. i'm elisabeth hassing beck. new video of what could be a terror attack in paris. man shout being isis stabs a preschool teacher. details on the chilling clues left in a terror magazine we'll tell you. donald trump takes on ted cruz as the texas senator polls ahead of mr. trump in iowa. >> he goes in there like a, you know, frankly, like a little bit of ai maniac. you're never going to get things done that way. >> did he say maniac?
how does interested cruz respon? with this. ♪ she's a maniac, she's a maniac on the floor ♪ >> turns into a joke. bret baier joins us live in about 20 minutes. >> we should watch that movie again, the thigh part. a pu, a purple heart in a hospital bed, why this touching photo is going viral. it's the third hour of "fox & friends" and your mornings are now better. howdy folks. welcome to the program. this is the time during the week when we turn to our friend bret baier, the guy who runs special report in our nation's capital to talk politics and look, there he is right there. good morning to you, bret. >> good morning. >> a lot of polls to go over and we have the stage set, one and two. first off on the criteria, bret,
kind of important. poll of 3.5% in iowa as well as new hampshire or have a certain number with the national poll, correct? >> yes, that's right, so cnn changed the criteria a bit and focused a little bit more on the early state polling and that saved rand paul, giving him a slot on the main stage. so he's in the top nine, and then there are four in the second debate, the second tier, including huckabee, who dropped from the first stage to the second. >> the good news though chris christie after he was on the undercard he's back on the overcard. >> thanks to new hampshire as well, also helping kasich and fiorina. >> exactly the new hampshire polling helped them significantly and christie clearly has made a move in new hampshire. >> sure. >> he's second, and he's in double figures, and he's surging and they say that you got to win one of the first three to stay alive and right now it looks like cruz is cruising in new hampshire, but trump is trying to take him down personally again and those have been very
effective those attacks. >> when you look at the stage, bret, it's been set. trump in the car, and flanked on his left and right are senator ted cruz and dr. ben carson. as you move out, carly fiorina, john kasich, to the right of donald trump, ted cruz, as i said, governor bush, chris christie, rand paul, as you move toward the left there, when you look at ted cruz and donald trump right near each other it's sort of echoes the recent polling, recent fox news poll of the republican preference among iowa, republican likely caucus goers, ted cruz is now jumped ahead of donald trump by two points. so of course what would donald trump do then but take aim at ted cruz and he did so over the weekend. listen to this. >> you look at the way he's dealt with the senate, where he goes in there like a, frankly, like a little bit of a maniac. you're never going to get things done that way. look, i built a phenomenal business. i'm worth many, many billions of dollars.
i have some of the greatest assets anywhere in the world. you can't walk in to the senate and scream and call people liars and not be able to cajole and get along with people. he'll never get anything done, and that's the problem with ted. >> there it goes, game on, right, bret? >> well the fact that his response was ted cruz's response was that as you mentioned tweeting out "maniac" from "footloose." >> "flashdance." >> "flashdance"? >> you're forgetting your iconic dance movies. >> thanks for the video with, this is good, monday morning that's good. >> you should be opening the special report program tonight with this. it's iconic. >> that's right, "flashdance" i'm sorry. i said "footloose" earlier, i need another cup of coffee but clearly it's pretty funny to watch. >> it is funny and what's interesting though is the fact that in the past when somebody has attacked donald trump, he's
blown them up and they've gone back. but in this case, ted cruz we're talking about, he doesn't respond with an attack. he responds with a little joke and of course what started it was ted cruz was recorded off camera somewhere at some event where he said some disparaging things about donald trump. >> yes, and listen, you are going to see this back and forth because clearly donald trump doesn't like to be second in any poll and he points to the polls he's number one in iowa, but the sand is shifting beneath him, i think, in iowa. now you have two polls, three polls that show ted cruz out in front, the biggest is the "des moines register" poll where he's up by ten. you can see the gop electorate changing and what's interesting is you could never see the establishment leadership saying ted cruz is going to be in the acceptable alternative. >> right. >> now they do. >> and let me bring you to that.
evidently the establishment, whatever that means, even he's a tea party candidate that came out of nowhere to win the senate seat, is marco rubio. do you sense in washington people are going to rally to rubio, because they can't figure out trump and they never liked ted? >> i think so, but you know, as he is kind of in the middle of the pack and we'll see what develops over the next month, even ted cruz is becoming more acceptable to leaders here in washington than donald trump, and that's really amazing. marco rubio clearly has some of the consolidated support here among his colleagues on the hill. >> right. and we are talking with these polls about iowa, where it's neck and neck, cruz and trump. nationally, the real clear politics poll has trump at 30, cruz at 16 and rubio at 14. but we've got some other things in iowa, when it comes to the things that are important to you, if you're concerned about national security, that's your
number one thing, 34%. 32 for economic issues, and then when you look at the particular candidates who address these things, ted cruz is the number one person when it comes to national security, as we see he gets 30, trump gets 20 in this poll right here. rubio gets 11, but when it comes to handling the economy that of course is donald trump's wheelhouse. he blows way ted cruz, he doubles it, 41, 17, followed by rubio and bush. >> so the top two concerns are split between the top two candidates right now in the republican side. >> no, that's right. i do think that terrorism national security is going to overtake any other consideration, if you look at any poll, it's number one. in ap, 7 out of 10 americans believe there will be or think there could be another terrorist attack like san bernardino and that is making peopleni anxious. it's why the president is going to the pentagon for the visual of meeting with his generals
although many people here don't think the strategy itself against ice sis going to change. >> we'll see if the president can reassure us today if that is even possible at this juncture. we'll see if anything changes because it doesn't seem like it is. bret, a lot of people say to themselves, what does bret baier do over the weekend. >> i did and looked on twitter and saw this adorable picture. >> you've gone period costumes. >> tell us what's happening here. >> that was at the nuseum, i read the editorial "yes, virginia, there is a santa claus" it's from it's a great little thing and the newseum set up a program and carolers and eventually santa claus came in and we had a blast. i took the kids and they were very proud. >> you're part of a museum now, is that right, the newseum, part of a display? >> i'm an active display. >> this say period piece because bret no teleprompters.
>> bret does not need no stinkin' teleprompter, he doesn't have one right now i don't think. >> the little girl next to me was playing the role of virginia, she was the great, great, great granddaughter of the actual virginia who wrote the letter to the editor. >> that is awesome. what a program. >> it was fun. >> very nice and there she is right there. >> well done, bret. >> bret we'll be watching your big show tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern time live from washington, d.c. >> >> have a good day. >> what a great photo. >> heather nauer was at the army/navy game in philly over the weekend. >> a lot of fun with our fox news colleagues over the weekend, nice job both teams. a fox news alert for our headlines, brand new video coming out of a paris suburb where a manhunt is under way after another possible terror attack took place. police say that a preschool teacher was stabbed in his classroom by a man who was

respect." but did the sentence violate her constitutional rights? fox news legal analyst peter johnson jr. located this story and is here to tell us what's going on. >> good morning. this is more than a head scratcher, this is a constitutional outrage. winter daisyobee, 73-year-old woman from nigeria, runs a ministry in somerville, massachusetts, was sent to jail for two years by judge paul yee jr. in massachusetts, a year and a half after that suspended if she did a certain probation. even you, wanting to be a person of god, have to respect all people, the first condition, and that's a probation imposed states you have to respect the rights of the people of the muslim faith. and so her lawyer has gone to court to the highest court and on january 8th in massachusetts,
will argue that this conviction should be overturned and that the sentence should be thrown out based on the first amendment violation, the free exercise clause. >> sure. >> the establishment clause of the constitution of this christian minister should be forced to go to the islamic society of boston and learn the muslim faith in an introductory course. >> wouldn't a more, you know, if it was somebody who is angry about something, why not anger management classes or something like that, but learn about a new religion? >> you're dead on, steve deucy. this was not a hate crime. she was not charged with a hate crime. here is the appeal her lawyers are taking on, saying the judge was biased and should have recused himself, meaning step out of the case because he had been involved in cases between the ten ant and landlord. he sentenced her allegedly making anti-muslim statements for which she wasn't charged or convicted. the victim in the case said there were anti-muslim statements and the sentence to
learn about islam say violation of the constitution's free exercise clause. if the defendant does not "respect" muslim people in the future, minister obee can be sent back to prison. >> what does that mean? >> you figure out whether that's subjective or ambiguous. >> that's the judge right there? >> that's the judge right there. he had a long history with minister obee an the alleged victim in this case so the lawyers that are bringing this case are absolutely outraged. they say what has come to pass in this country, anger management is appropriate if there was in fact a hate crime or an assault, but to say that someone should go to the islamic society of boston for example, a place where the tsarnaevs were, and where lady al qaeda was and say you learn the muslim faith and if you act up, maybe i'll put you back in prison. >> peter, you studied law for years. have you ever heard of something like this? >> this is really unpress denned. i understand hate crimes and i understand the need to push back
and train people that they shouldn't engage in that conduct but she wasn't charged for that. this is a christian minister who's being sentenced, demanded by the government, you go learn about islam. i respect islam as does all america but a sentence in a criminal proceeding? come on. >> come on. >> not our constitution. >> no kidding. all right. peter, keep us posted. >> this is incredible outrage. >> it indeed. peter thank you very much. straight ahead on this monday, a family is heartbroken a brench to ench to honor their removed from a park because it had a bible verse on it. the family joins us live next. want to know how we celebrate christmas? the "fox & friends" christmas party down at the bowling alley and there might have been an adult beverage or two. ♪ take it to the club in my taxi club ♪ ♪ everybody's looking at me now ♪ ♪ like who's that chick that's rockin' kicks, got to be from out of town ♪

but they said asked for the reason why, what was the reason they gave you that it couldn't be there? >> you know, they first said that we didn't have permission, but then it came out that it was the bible verse and the crosses that are on each side of the bench. >> the statement from the town manager said the bench was first noticed on monday morning and was removed due to not being approved and the bench has relimbious symbols and scripture in the design by no other feature in the park does. your friends were in touch with the town, correct, andrew? >> yes, he was in touch with the town. he was actually working directly with the director of parks and recreation to get the bench put up. so i mean, there was never a formal approval process mentioned to him, or he would have followed that approval process. it was just a matter of he was
dealing directly with the director and assumed that everything would turn out just fine. it wasn't until the bible verse was discovered that it was on there, that anything became an issue. >> there's a town council meeting tonight, correct? >> yes there is. >> what do you want everyone there to know? what do you want your town to know? a bunch of people will probably speak up for your family so you can properly remember mason there as it were on that bench. what do you want everyone to know? >> i just want the bench back. i mean, i think the bench deserves to be at the park near the playground or wherever they deem suitable but i just love to see it back there. i want them to know that ben was telling the truth from the get-go about the permission and that's really all there was to it. >> you know, we can't have our little boy here on earth with us, the least we can do is go sit on his bench and take my older son down there to play and feel proud that that bench is there. >> well said. i will pray that everybody there comes to their senses for you,
